It is a stable system which offers a wide variety of themes and templates.As WordPress is such a popular product, there are many designers and developers available to work on projects.Ready-made themes speed the design process; a huge number of quality themes are available from several sources.Good for rapidly turning around all the elements required for online sales funnels.It has a vast array of themes which could be applied to make the website visually look more appealing to the target market.This program has made it possible for our company to advertise all around the country, instead of keeping it local.

Cons
The initial setup was very complex.I understand that some functions are lost when you store the information in a file system, so maybe that's a way SharePoint can improve.SharePoint sometimes cannot handle the amount of co-editing that we do.Needs improvement on the user interface.Processing data from multiple site collections is not easy as they reside in different databases.The management of the product/back-end is complex.It should have more user-friendly customization, as it still requires developers to get engaged and build sites.I would like it to be more compliant with global regulations. There are certain features which could be included that currently are not there, such as compliance and record management capabilities.

The system should be more informative.The basic product is becoming less usable by end users for site maintenance post delivery.Backups and moving sites could be handled better.WordPress sites do require quite a bit of maintenance: Constant updates to both WordPress and all the various plugins that it requires.It may be useful to have a downloadable program that you could have on your desktop that allows you to create and maintain the program while offline.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost is expensive, but worthwhile.We have purchased add-ons to handle multiple site collections, form creation, and design.The data classification and search elements are cheap.The replacement costs for it are cheaper if you use only SharePoint.It is very expensive.​Licensing can be by server or by seat.As usual, Microsoft’s licensing structures don’t really seem to fit the needs of their products. This leads to always paying for a project you will never use fully or always be adding to.

Set up cost is nothing. Pricing is free. You need to pay a cost only for the domains, hosting, and to buy themes.It provides a high ROI.

SharePoint is a Microsoft-based platform for building web applications. It covers a widerange of capabilities and while it is appropriate for experienced webdevelopers, even non-technical minded users can easily navigate through thesystem and execute functions such as collaborating data, managing documents andfiles, creating websites, managing social networking solutions, and automatingworkflow.

Major areas that SharePoint deals with are websites,communities, content, search, insights, and composites. The purpose is to give usersthe ability to create or develop these key business components on their owneven without technical knowledge of, for example, how to build a website or howto integrate coding. Configuring SharePoint into a business's system is meantto cut out all of the complicated steps, and pave the way for easierimplementation all around.

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. WordPress is installed on a web server, which either is part of an Internet hosting service or is a network host itself; the first case may be on a service like WordPress.com, for example, and the second case is a computer running the software package WordPress.org. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system.
